Our school is having a formal dance next week, and I wanted to make my own dress. So I designed, made the pattern, and sewed my dress.
It took a lot less time than I thought, actually. The black stripes were the most time-consuming.
ALSO! My very first project above the "Nice 'n' Simple" difficulty! (I think)
ALSO TAKE 2! I only labeled it "Pretty Tough" because it was tedious and difficult to get the stripes right - you can see I messed up a bit - and also because I drafted the pattern from scratch.
Also, side note, in the picture of the back, there are little weird fiddly bits under the arms, but those aren't there when a real person wears it.
